A Simple Anisotropic Mesh-Refinement Strategy for Triangular Elements in 2D
Journal article, 2012
A novel approach to anisotropicmesh-refinement of linear triangular elements in the finite element
method is proposed. Using the method of solving a hierarchically refined dual problem in the a
posteriori error analysis, indicators for edge refinement, rather than element refinement, can be
obtained. A complete adaptive strategy is presented and illustrated by some numerical examples.
